(12 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Normandy & Mont St-Michel, Paris & Versailles, Provence, Cote d’Azur

This private luxury France tour has been designed for family members of all ages. It includes iconic, only-in-France experiences such as touring the highlights of Paris, exploring the historic sites and rural beauty of Normandy, and visiting the villages of Provence and the Cote d’Azur, all while staying at the top hotels and resorts in each destination.

Begin in Normandy and stay at a luxury chateau hotel. During private touring with an expert Normandy guide, learn the significance of D-Day while at the actual landing beaches, and tour other significant World War II-related sites such as the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, the Mulberry Artificial Harbors, and the Caen Museum of Peace. Visit the historic town of Bayeux to see the famous tapestry illustrating the Norman invasion of England in 1066. One day, enjoy a private excursion to Mont Saint-Michel, a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of France’s true wonders. This enormous abbey and town on a tidal island has been a pilgrimage site since ancient times, and it remains one of Europe's most popular attractions. Kids and adults love exploring the alleys and stairways surrounding this fairytale island abbey. Also see Rouen, where Joan of Arc was martyred and Claude Monet spent hours painting the medieval cathedral, and Monet’s house and gardens in Giverny, a wonderful world of flowers, greenery and ponds.

Continue to Paris for three nights at one of the city’s most acclaimed luxury hotels. With your own private guide and driver, tour the city according to the interests of your family. Favorite options include a tour of the Eiffel Tower; seeing the Mona Lisa and other art masterpieces during a family-friendly tour of the Louvre Museum; visiting famous patisseries and cafes; take a cruise on the Seine River; and exploring Montmartre. One day, enjoy a private excursion to Versailles to tour Louis XIV’s opulent palace, including the Hall of Mirrors, the gardens, and the Hameau de la Reine, the mock hamlet created for Marie-Antoinette. If desired, we can also arrange biking on the grounds of Versailles. Other options we arrange include touring Paris with an art expert, private shopping tours, a private perfume-making workshop, a day at Paris Disneyland, picnics in Parisian parks, as well as tickets to the ballet, opera, circus or other performances.

Next, transfer by high-speed TGV train to Provence, and stay at a luxury hotel in the heart of the Luberon Valley. Enjoy private touring of nearby villages such as Gordes, Roussillon, Menerbes and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. Also visit other highlights in the region according to your interests, such as the best of Provencal markets, Roman ruins, nearby national parks, historic attractions in towns such as Avignon, art and architectural touring in Arles and St. Remy, antiques stores, colorful town squares and more.

Conclude on the beautiful Cote d’Azur and stay at a luxurious resort overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Visit local towns along the waterfront and in the hills of the French Riviera and Monaco, such as Nice, Cannes, Eze, Saint-Paul de Vence, Antibes and Monte-Carlo. Touring options include exploring atmospheric villages, seeing the Prince’s Palace in Monte-Carlo, strolling through botanic gardens, browsing local markets, visiting art museums and the Chapelle du Rosaire (Matisse chapel), strolling along waterside promenades, sampling local culinary specialties, and much more, depending on your family’s interests. We can also arrange special interest activities such as learning to make your own perfume at a workshop in Grasse, chartered boat excursions, wine tasting, biking and more. During leisure time, enjoy your luxury resort, or perhaps spend time at the beach.
